Our precious Cape Chamomile comes from a small artisan distillery in South Africa. The harvests are very limited and usually sell out within a year of harvest and distilling. We reserve ours a year in advance. Sometimes those who seek this oil find it unavailable and have to wait for new harvests and distillations. It is common for cape chamomile to be of limited availability depending on the year. This is our favorite batch yet from this talented distiller.
Steam distilled wild cape chamomile yields a heavenly crisp green apple scent that is profoundly luscious and loving! There are many uses for Cape Chamomile. Cape chamomile is effective against fear and anxiety and does amazing things for the skin. It may be applied topically for soothing any skin condition and calming the mind. This beautiful essence may be used diluted or “neat” (directly) on the skin. You may try adding a few drops to the bath for a soothing soak. Cape Chamomile is lovely in a diffuser as well. Mixes well with many other essential oils for varied effects and you can also make this treasured gem really last by diluting the essential oil into a one of our luxurious carrier oils.
